Shaw, the former deputy undersecretary of the DOD and a former DOD deputy inspector general, is liable in his individual capacity for at least ,3 million in compensatory damages and no less than ,10 million in punitive damages.According to the complaint, the DOD employed Sudnick as a senior adviser to the Ministry of Education with the Coalition Provisional Authority when it temporarily governed Iraq.Sudnick also claims that between November 2003 and April 2004, Shaw tried to expand the scope of another procurement, involving a telecommunications system, so a company owned by his friends and associates could become involved.The complaint charges that when Sudnick reported Shaw's alleged misconduct to CPA officials, they asked Sudnick to resign or face being fired.The complaint charges that when Sudnick reported Shaw's alleged misconduct to CPA officials, they asked Sudnick to resign or face being fired.The suit claims the office of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld demanded the CPA ask Sudnick to resign.Sudnick claims each representation concerning bribes and other alleged misconduct listed in the illegally released records is false and defamatory.The suit adds that several articles subsequently appeared in the press stating Sudnick had received bribes in connection with the cell phone licenses.Sudnick says the illegal and false disclosures have hindered his ability to gain employment.He also contends that even though the DOD declared in December 2004 that he had not been involved in any wrongdoing, the government has refused to rehire him, citing the allegations that appeared in the press.Sudnick adds that Shaw was later fired from his government position for reasons unrelated to the Privacy Act violations.Sudnick contends that as a result of the defendants' conduct he has suffered substantial damages, including loss of reputation, severe emotional distress, humiliation and embarrassment.

CorpWatch : Iraq: Cellular Project Leads to U.S. Inquiry
Daniel Sudnick, who was the senior advisor to Iraq's minister of communications, the highest-ranking American in the ministry, and Bonnie Carroll, a chief deputy, resigned this month.Sudnick issued a statement denying Shaw's charges of corruption in the original cellular license award that he helped to oversee."Together with my team, we were singularly instrumental in putting modern communications in place that never existed in Iraq before," Sudnick said."No one, doing it properly and carefully, and avoiding the misuse of taxpayers' dollars, could have done it any faster."Although Shaw had no direct authority over Sudnick, Shaw suggested in an e-mail to Sudnick in November that Sudnick could "graft" a CDMA system onto the first-responder contract that could then "morph into a commercial service with our having total control over it."Although Shaw had no direct authority over Sudnick, Shaw suggested in an e-mail to Sudnick in November that Sudnick could "graft" a CDMA system onto the first-responder contract that could then "morph into a commercial service with our having total control over it.""Believe we could concoct a new configuration of Liberty CDMA bid with emergency system grafted on top of it," Shaw wrote Sudnick in November, according to an e-mail obtained by The Times.Sudnick attended, along with Pentagon officials and contractors, including Lucent and Qualcomm.Shaw introduced what he called a fast-track solution to getting the first-responder network up and running, unveiling the pairing of Nana and Guardian Net.Sudnick and Carroll told Pentagon investigators that they did not realize Ganley headed Liberty Mobile. Sudnick made that point clear in an attachment to an e-mail to Shaw just days after the January meeting."The intended market and use of the [first-responder] network will be strictly non-commercial," he wrote.Sudnick and coalition officials decided they could use Nana to build a small-scale first-responder network in Baghdad - essentially a pilot version of a nationwide first-responder system that could cost as much as $70 million.Carroll and Sudnick rejected the proposal.Two days later, Shaw e-mailed Sudnick that the first-responder network "is the last opportunity to install a viable cellular network that is responsive to our needs and requirements.Sudnick does not mention such a project in e-mails reviewed by The Times, and Shaw was unable to produce any documentation to back up his assertion.Within days of the blow-up, a senior coalition official told Sudnick that he was no longer allowed to work on the first-responder network, sources said.Sudnick submitted his resignation and was followed by Carroll a few days later.
